We just returned from almost 6 weeks at the cabin in Blairsden. We had Thanksgiving, Alex's birthday, and Christmas there. And got about 2 feet of snow over the duration! Gam came up twice so we had some nice family time too. The girls had a blast -- we cut our own Christmas tree off the property, sledded and snowboarded our hills, visited a local playground and made friends, did some home renovations, took out about 3 dozen trees that were too close to the house, and, believe it not, mostly relaxed together. I think the girls came home happier, and EASIER, than they were before left -- I think the benefit of not having internet or telephone to distract mama and daddy in addition to no television!
Many, many photos to tell the tale! Here is a start:
Thanksgiving (and some good "before shots" of the cabin). You can see Greggie dressed for the occasion appropriately, as usual.
